They have' also asked about the propriety of publishing his remarks, for fear it would play Into Communist hands. The answer tn question No. 1 is that the en- eral, In talklni to the press and a group of dele- Ifites af Chicago on July *, did critlclw France for Its rellKlou* and moral attitude. The newspapers did riot Invent his remarks. He volunteered the*.The answer to question No. J Is that there wasn't the remotest chance of hushing tip the general's, statement, since it was cabled to France by the press associations and by French newsmen within a matter of minutes. It wan published In all the French newspapers the same day. For Instance, here Is the "bulletin" which In- tcrnntlonnl News Service cabled to Frafice: "General Eisenhower said today France has 'gone astray' morally and declared one of the reasons is lhat the French brag ttiat they are 50 per cent agnostic or atheist. He asserted Franc* has reached the point where the moral fibre dis* integrates, and added: 'One reason France has gone astray Is that (her brag that they are 50 pev cent agnostic or atheist'." Other cabled dispatches to Trance were similar. * .* + Those who expressed the view that Eisenhower's statement should have been suppressed or not commented upon apparently forget two things: 1. If is not possible lor the United Slates any longer to live ostrichlike with our heads in the sand. As Ihe most powerful country in the world, what pur leaders do or say Is cabled Immediately to every part of Ihe world. 2. One of the most important reasons tor an election campaign is to gauge and size-up the candidate. To do that Is necessary to knnv/ what he says, and what his judgment is regarding any and every Important siutatlon. President Truman has been continually crili- ciicd, and rightly so, for making off-the-cuff statements which affect our foreign relations. ]( Eisenhower is addicted to the same habit, then the American public has a right to know it, In advance.

Thr obvious one was that it gave ammunition to the Communists. But al?o important is the delicate situation in France with the Catholic leaders, who happen to be the best friends of the United fitntes and the most vigorous opponents nf Communism. The leaders of the French government today belong to the Catholic group. The statement that SO per cent of France is agnostic or atheistic will be construed by the enemies of the church as a reflection on the church, since France is officially a Catholic country, But perhaps equally important. Ihe Catholic group must have the cooperation of the moderate, non-Communist socialists and leftists in order to stay in power. On one side they face the CommunlMs, nn the other side the De Gaullists. Therefore, the present Catholic leaders must have the support, of the non-Communist left, which is probably the group Eisenhower meant to criticize. These are some nf the political niceties so important In France today which the general, hav- irig lived tor more than a year in France, pre- tunubly -should know, and certainly must be able to deal with if he is to be an efficient president of the United States. Bennett Cerf Don Mankiewicz's novel "S«e Hnw They R u n . ' is n i l about hoire-racing, and his publisher persuaded him to visit a crowded track just before the book appeared, and pose for some publicity shots. As luck would have it, the police department had picked this day to round up hookies, touts, and any other suspicious-looking characters. First thing you know, not only Man- kiewlc?., hut the photographer and the publisher were on their way to the hoosegnw. Tall talking and the promise of a dozen autographed m-vr- K of "See How They Run" got them sprung in time for a very late and very cold dinner. * « * An irate lady in Oshkosh demanded a divorce on the grounds that her husband stuck pins into a voodoo doll that looked just like her, but the · judge said, "No dice." He believed the husbarid's testimony that he had done it all in the spirit of good, clean fun--and besides, added the husband ruefully, it didn't work. * * * To give you some idea of how tightly the shoe is pinching the people of England torlay, a young hostess in Cambridge was reproved for asking a guest at tes, 'One lump or two?" "You must choose your words' more carefully," warned her mother. "You'll have your guest thinking you're the coal man!" + * * There's an excellent little book on gardening published recently that's called "The Grafter's Handbook." The clerk in one bookstore in Washington unhesitatingly placed his stock in the shelf marked "government." * * * A farmer's wife went stark raving mad one morning. As she was being led away by attendants from the nearest asylum her husband scratched his head in perplexity and muttered, "I'm danged if f kin fig,?cr what's gotten into the old girl.
